Enviromentally Friendly Menses, Periods, Menstraul Cycles....

A womanly topic ~ environmentally friendly periods

Oh yes, what a topic.  This is for women, by a woman.  Besides suffering through inconsistent monthy/bimonthly/biweekly periods, I also suffered through sensitivities to commercial pads and tampons.  I thought what did they use before they had Kotex and Always?  In history books they used moss...none of that available...then they just used cloth rags.  WELL, in the 60's they were using the DIVA cup until big business discovered the money to be made in producing "disposables" we add monthly to the growing number of hardly degradable diapers in the landfills!  YIKES.  So I got me the DIVA CUP.
 Two sizes for women who have been pregnant, one for not.  No biggie.  My periods have never been the same.  I'm assuming if you have ever BEEN pregnant, or miscarried, you still get the different size.  It has to do with the shape of the cervix and changes to it during pregnancy.
Took 2 cycles to sorta get the hang of it, but I now take it everywhere and can function nicely in any setting.  Relax!  Check out the links. 
I love that I can monitor my reproductive health better as well.  I can tell when my period will be over because of the amounts in the cup when I empty it.  I will be able to "see" if something is different.  My periods are now a little shorter.  THE BEST thing ~ no more messes at night or when I stand up. 
This link you can use my coupon code "Jolenecouponcode" to get $10 off when you order $40.  I have never seen the Diva Cup for under $39 in Canada.  I had bought mine in a London Drugs.
The above site has tonnes of products as well, great for those of us living a little more remote!
Oh, see the money I am saving....ha ha!
